19-year-old dead after officer-involved shooting near Mall at Millenia, Orlando Police say

A 19-year-old man died Saturday night near the Mall at Millenia after he allegedly pulled out a gun and fired shots at an officer, according to Orlando Police Department.

Police identified the man on Sunday as Sebastian Sepulveda Roman.

Chief Orlando Rolon told reporters Saturday night that an off-duty police officer was working extra duty at the mall and was escorting Roman off property when Roman pulled out a gun and began shooting at that officer.

The officer did not shoot back out of concern for the safety of other people around, Chief Rolon said.

The suspect ran away and was chased by the off-duty officer and an on-duty officer who was nearby, police said.

Across the street near the Olive Garden, there was an exchange of gunfire between Roman and the on-duty officer. Roman died at the scene, though it is unclear how he died or if he was shot by police.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the shooting, which is standard protocol for all police-involved shootings. Orlando police will then conduct its own internal investigation, which is standard procedure.

"We will conduct a thorough review of this incident. My condolences go out to the family of the individual deceased and to the officers and their families who are now dealing with a traumatic experience," Chief Rolon said in a statement.

Sunday afternoon, Orlando police shared a photo of the gun apparently used by Roman in the shooting. Police said the gun was stolen.
